Conference Objective: 

This virtual conference is for the entire family and includes a Parent Advocacy Round Table Breakout Session, DJ Young Fresh Prince Thomas, a Poem Contest, and two panels: Military Career Pathway and Fatherhood Barbershop Conversations. The mentoring conference is specifically geared toward black and brown students of color: Grades 4–5 (Elementary School), Grades 6–8 (Middle School), and Grades 9–12 (High School). Over the past nine years, the conference has grown and has impacted the lives of more than 5,000 students in Montgomery County, Maryland, and the surrounding metropolitan area.


The purpose of the mentoring conference is to bring together 2nd District Chapters across the five states and stakeholder groups (students, parents, community leaders/supporters, local churches, fraternities and sororities, and other like-minded individuals) and to bring awareness to the challenges faced by young black and brown students of color, especially our male students who are striving to be success stories, even in this global COVID-19 pandemic.


The Saturday, February 26, 2022, virtual Game Changer Conference is open to boys, girls, and families. Mentors, coaches, dads, uncles, mothers, guardians, church organizations, sororities and fraternities and Omega Men/Chapters are encouraged to register their young students for the conference!
